This is what a short film should be. Or at least a short short film. I mean, yes, Six-Shooter is good, but it's a half an hour. With a title that sounds, frankly, pedestrian and uninteresting, one might not expect the launching pad it provides for a truly hilarious film.
The best thing about this is how deadly serious all the actors play into the film. The pathos of the clown, the deep-seated anxiety of the ringmaster, and the sincerity of all the performers as they seek to save the show. The differences that separate this film and "The Butterfly Circus" are small if you think about it... but the payoff is ridiculous (no offense to the Butterfly Circus, it's just a different kind of movie).
Anyway, good performances, great style, all around, a fun film worth anyone's four minutes and three seconds!
